Creating Your Best Career Yet!
Creating Your Best Career Yet!How different would the journey be if we realized we were part of creating it?
Poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element.It is my personal approach that creates the climate.It is my daily mood that makes the weather.I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous.I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration;I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they out to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.

The Right QuestionsBy Debbie Ford
Will this choice propel me toward an inspiring future or will it keep me stuck in the past?
Will this choice bring me long-term fulfillment or will it bring me short-term fulfillment?
Am I standing in my power or am I trying to please another?
Am I looking for whats right or am I looking for whats wrong?
Will this choice add to my life force or will it rob me of my energy?
Will I use this situation as a catalyst to grow and evolve or will I use it to beat myself up?
Does this choice empower me or does it disempower me?
Is this an act of self-love or is it an act of self-sabotage?
Is this an act of faith or is this an act of fear?
Am I choosing from my divinity or am I choosing from my humanity?
